Sector Methodology Update for S-Network Indexes

New York, NY, November 30, 2018 — S-Network Global Indexes today announced that effective for the next upcoming reconstitutions, the methodologies for S-Network indexes that have used GICS Sector 50 for stock selection purposes will be updated to reflect the restructuring and renaming of Sector 50 from “Telecommunication Services” to “Communication Services”.

 

For the following S-Network indexes, the rules will be updated to reflect the new name of Sector 50, but methodology will not otherwise change:

 

·         S-Network Sector Dividend Dogs Index (SDOGX)

·         S-Network Emerging Sector Dividend Dogs Index (EDOGX)

·         S-Network International Sector Dividend Dogs Index (IDOGX)

·         S-Network Mid-Cap Sector Dividend Dogs Index (MDOGX)

·         S-Network ADR Dividend Index (Ticker: ADRDX)

·         S-Network Dividend Index Series:

o    S-Network Durable Dividends US Large-Cap Index (Ticker: SNDDX)

o    S-Network Durable Dividends US Mid-Cap Index (Ticker: SNDDMX)

o    S-Network Durable Dividends Developed International Index (Ticker: SNDDIX)

o    S-Network US Mid-Cap Dividend Index (Ticker: SNMDIV)

o    S-Network Developed International Dividend Index (Ticker SNIDIV)

 

The S-Network Sector Low Volatility Index (SLOWX) will no longer merge the Information Technology and Telecommunication Services sectors for selection purposes, and will instead select from the Information Technology and Communication Services sectors separately. As a result, the maximum constituent count in SLOWX will increase from 45 to 50.

 

As per the reconstitution schedules for the indexes listed above, ADRDX and those in the S-Network Dividend Index Series will select from the Communication Services sector starting with the June 2019 reconstitutions, and the rest will select from the Communication Services sector starting with the December 2018 reconstitutions.
